First week of April 2014- crowd predictions

So looking ahead, and I realize it's just a prediction, but touring plans have those numbers lower than the weeks before and after for the first week of April 2014.

Anyone know why? I would assume that the first week of April is in the middle of Spring Break season. We are looking to go on a cruise during our kid's Spring Break the last week of April and do a few days at WDW either before or after and the crowds are MUCH better April 1-5 than, say, March 19-22.

Using a certain word brings out a special kind of cray-cray

Look at when Easter falls next year. That is a major factor (along with SB) impacting crowds in March and April. Avoid the weeks immediately before and after Easter if possible.

ETA: Easter 2014 is April 20--expect high crowds near that date.

Thanks! Sorry to confuse anyone, SB for us is the last week of MARCH not April as I said in my original post.

We usually go in February but we wanted to add a cruise and don't want to pull them more than a couple days from school which is why we're doing it around SB.
